San Miguel is a wonderful city and as a World Heritage site the center city has been nicely restored. At the same time, it is a vibrant place that is totally safe and full of very friendly people. The cobblestone streets are lined with a wide variety of shops and restaurants.
There is something for every taste from a simple grocery store to large markets; toys to silver jewelry; street artists to beautiful art galleries and from food carts to restaurants with white linen tablecloths.
Minutes away by cab is the more gritty side of town where we also found great food and adventure all the while feeling totally safe. We experienced the finest of Mexico on every level.
The house is located on a quiet street within the World Heritage boundaries and only a five minute walk from the village square. We were here for six nights without a car and easily walked everywhere we needed to go. On occasion we caught one of the many clean and inexpensive cabs.
The house is spacious and exquisite in its design and furnishings. The interior finishes are first-rate in every detail with the only drawback being low water pressure. It is 14 years old but looks new. It is simply beautiful and so very comfortable.
The pool and grounds are also beautiful and well kept. The owner and maid could not have been more helpful and kind.
In town, tours were easily be arranged to nearby cities and attractions.
On a scale of 1 to 10 this property easily scores a 10. The experience in San Miguel and in this home left us wanting nothing but to come back!
